So far I've only managed to get PDF to PDF working here.
So how do I convert it to LRF,or do you suggest keeping those documents in PDF?

(BTW thank you for the program,I've only had a brief look at it)
That was the original plan. I wanted to keep the files in pdf format. These reformatted pdf files can be read easily on the reader.

Okay I found my first bug. It seems bookmarks on PDF are getting removed from the PDF.

These are bookmarks in the PDF used by the SONY reader for the table of contents.

Not bad at all.

Big files resulting from scanning still crash my Cybook or are so slow that hey are useless, but text ones (with images or not) are quite good!

One more info: does not convert PDF files with monochrome images JBIG2 compressed, CCITT Group 4 compressed, no problem.

Bets regards,

I am aware of the issue. I do not quite understand how the bookmarks work in PDF file. I will update the tool once I do or if anyone here does understand how bookmarks work then they are free to update the source.

One question: any plans on evolving into a gui with options to choose from?

It shouldn't take too long to wrap this in gui. I will look into it after I complete the output to image option.

If it's working great,maybe you can contact the guys at calibre, and integrate it in their software.
Calibre has already got the option of converting some documents, if yours works better (faster, more accurate,etc) then maybe a joint venture might be a good idea?

I have published the source. They can integrate it w/o my permission if they wish to do so.

two point

1) This thread is better suited at the "Format Conversions" section since this is not SONY only. This tool can be used by any eBook Reader that supports PDF.

2) Can this tool implement a feature that splits 2 page PDF to a single page?
